I’m sure you are thinking, “Erin, this is BAKERY bingo. Frozen yogurt is not a pastry nor is it a fancy dessert.” Ok that is all true, but sometimes you just gotta get a lighter dessert. As always, after dinner last night I was hoping for some dessert but I didn’t say anything as I was trying to be good this week. As luck would have it, Brice asked me if I wanted to get fro yo. Why yes, I would! It’s fat-free, high in calcium and high in protein – so it totally doesn’t count in my book! 🙂
I have now also heard back from Marc Frankel of Lovejoy Bakers! I mentioned Marc in my earlier blog on Lovejoy Bakers – he is the co-owner I see almost every time I go there, so it was especially great to hear from him. As he is basically living my dream of owning an awesome local bakery, I was particularly excited to hear that he loves every minute of being there; it “never really feels like work,” Marc said. Someday maybe that will be me 🙂
When it’s a beautiful Saturday morning, all I want to do is wander through the Farmer’s Market. I love the people watching, dreaming up what fun creations I can make with all the fresh produce, and trying to stop myself from purchasing every delicious prepared treat available (and there are a lot!). This past Saturday, I headed out in the warm sunshine to do just that.
As I zig-zagged past the baby strollers and tables of asparagus and flower bouquets, a cute and rustic booth caught my eye. With an adorable red patterned tablecloth and a display case that looked like the side of an old house, Lauretta Jean’s booth makes you feel like you are back at Mama’s house in the country, eagerly waiting for the pie to cool on the windowsill. I had been hearing for a while that this was the place to get a slice of pie, so I was pretty excited when I unintentionally found their Farmer’s Market homestead.
